  Visibility Color - with Turtle Graphics

Features a full set of scripting commands and settings plus full print preview and Portrait/Landscape in the same print run

Whilst VisualAge for Smalltalk includes a report writer, there are many things that it cannot do. Visibility Color is designed to be a development tool for printed output. Visibility Color provides a framework that gives you an object interface to the printed page. The following is a list of the currently supported objects:

  • Text (single line or word wrapped into a space of any size, font style,  color and justification including decimal.
    Text may be rotated at any angle required
  • Line - of any width and color including dashed lines and lines with arrow heads
  • Circle - of any radius and color - filled or open
  • Ellipse - of any radii and color - filled or open
  • Rectangle - of any size  and color - filled or open
  • 3D rectangle - of any size  and color - filled or open
  • Shadowed rectangle  - of any size  and color - filled or open
  • Images - scaled and stretched to fit including all supported VA image formats


  • Provides for the simple creation of a page using the above objects
  • Provides a common collection of objects that are repeated on each page
  • Provides full page numbering
  • Allows for both portrait and landscape pages in a single print run
  • Provides for full scaled page preview through either a standard widget or through a Parts interface.


  • Simplifies the interface with the Printer to effectively a script process
  • Automates much of the page layout such as line heights for text etc.
  • Provides word wrapping into defined text areas to simplify the layout
  • Enables a full page preview with dynamic scaling of the view with little effort
  • Gives your users a single print run even when they have landscape and portrait pages in the same document.


Please note these will be shortly incorporated into one manual.
